Vikings RB Dalvin Cook reported to training camp on Tuesday. This was the most likely scenario all along because the new CBA makes it very costly to hold out of training camp. Cook is still looking for a new contract, so we'll see if there are any further issues down the road. But for now, he's worth picking in the middle of the 1st round of fantasy drafts.

Recent Shark Bites

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He was limited in practice this week, and there's a chance Minnesota scales back his workload a bit in Sunday's game against the Jaguars. That might be a reason to not pay up for him in DFS, but Cook remains an obvious must-start in season-long fantasy leagues.

Vikings OC Gary Kubiak admitted Tuesday that RB Dalvin Cook is "beat up" right now. "He’s been hit pretty hard the last couple of weeks taking some poundings," Kubiak added. "It’s at that point of the season so we’ve got to get him freshened up this week and get him back to being himself." Cook briefly exited last week's game with an ankle injury but was able to return. We're not aware of any other specific injuries, although we're sure he's feeling it after averaged 25.4 carries and 3.4 catches per game over the last 5 weeks. We'll keep an eye on Cook this week, but expect him to get another 20+ touches vs. the Jaguars on Sunday.
